Based on the closure of stadiums and venues in Las Vegas and around the country due to the pandemic, we have decided it is in the best interest and safety of our Gospel Music Industry of nominees, radio and internet stations, Gospel music announcers, artists and fans to produce the 35th Annual Stellar Awards as a virtual at home broadcast television special without an audience.
This virtual at home format of the televised 35th Annual Stellar Awards will be full of dynamic Gospel music performances as well as the announcement of Stellar Awards winners in designated categories and acceptance speeches from winners.
In addition to the Stellar Awards televised special, we will produce our regular activation events of the Stellar Pre-show, Red Carpet and Social Media lounge online digitally, celebrating all of the 35th Annual Stellar Award nominees in their respective categories, along with the announcement of winners in each category that do not appear in our broadcast televised show. Specific directions of our exciting plans for your participation will be forwarded to you by mid-June.
Our virtual at home television special will air nationally on cable and in broadcast syndication throughout the months of August and September 2020. The online digital virtual Preshow, Red Carpet and Social Media lounge celebrating all nominees, will premier online prior to the broadcast of the 35th Annual Stellar Awards. The airdates for both specials will be posted on our website and will additionally be shared on all of our social media platforms.
In light of COVID-19 we will honor “First Responder Heroes” of the pandemic during our Stellar Awards television special.
Specifics of their plans along along with more details will be released soon!
